Sarah Beckman, Author and Speaker


Congrats, Sarah! You & your speaking ministry are being featured today on the front page of! LOVE how Jesus shines through you!
I haven't posted much on our Launch page, although I was going all of our assignments. I kind of miss those frequent check-ins. But the work continues. While we were in Arizona, the books I ordered from Amazon arrived, along with a copy of Alongside. Today, I read a post from a friend who is going through a very difficult cancer challenge and has had people posting very negative things. I immediately texted her and told her I had the perfect book for her and was putting one in the mail on Monday. Sarah, thank you, thank you, thank you for writing this wonderful book. You are a Godsend!
Congrats, Sarah! You are one of the most-requested speakers at this week! LOVE how Jesus shines through you!
Good morning, sweet Sarah!! Today's the day!! Could you even sleep last night?? Praying that you have a wonderful day and will feel so blessed. Thank you, thank you, thank you for blessing us with your writing. As we drove through NM yesterday, it was such a temptation to look you up!!
Love to see you in the videos! (Cute shoes in the “Profile of a Servant”. ☺️)

Thank you to speaking to us today!
And thank you for this verse. :)
Sarah, I'm reading your book alongside. I've been reading during the day time til husband gets home from work. I'm so blessed I'm reading it. I understand the stories and God's wisdom of helping at hardships, trials, and taking care of yourself. It's not about you. (yourself) I'm enjoying all of the aspects of life, and hardship trials. Your book is inspirational, inspiring, and comforting. I'm almost done reading it. I cried when I started reading the chapter of when someone is aging. I'm going through this trial now. (my grandma) It's been tough, and hard times. My husband and I are doing everything that we can do and help. I want to say God Blessed you and your family. I'm so blessed to have you as my sister in Christ. You're inspirational to me. I'm shining my light for him always. Galatians: 5:14. May God Blessed!💖🙌💖🙌

Amazing hearts of volunteers loving people well in hard places. Who knew God was preparing me for such a time as this? Never underestimate Gods plan for your life. It might be bigger than you thought but he is by your side as you learn how to walk in obedience.

An alternative to Shelter in Place. This is a devotional I shared for my church this week. May it encourage you!


Ready for Church!

It’s almost time!⏳
Join us online at 10:30 AM.


Honored to serve with Citizen Church Maui and love our island in this great time of need! #coronawontstopus #lovingourneighbor #alongside #hopeinthehardplaces

In the last week, we've had an amazing opportunity to BE the Church as we serve our local community. Thanks to extremely generous donations from @sysco_corp, we were able to offer drive up grocery distribution to help over 150 families in our church family and beyond. So proud of this effort to come together, in safe conditions with a small team of people, to serve our island in this time of need.


Maui Friends, here's how you can watch church TODAY!

Join for church online Sunday, March 22nd!


These people are the 💓 of @ctzn.maui church. I miss them all!! But what an amazing few weeks we had in early February.

What I’m learning is that even when you don’t understand the path that God asks you to step on and walk forward in’s important to do it anyway. Obedience looks a lot like loving people, putting your own desires second, and trusting God to make it all clear. And as I’ve been blessed to know each and every one of the people at this church in Maui I think “what if I’d never said yes?!”

God is good. And he’s working out all things even if we don’t see it or understand it.

I get to see all of my peeps in just 8 days!!

In case you’re wondering why I’m traveling to Maui on.

God has called me to help my ABQ church as we launch our new campus @ctzn.maui. In that vein one of the responsibilities I had was to help with our church’s vision to serve outside our walls.

A few days ago our citizen family (Ohana) held a #serveday19 to love our new neighbors on the island of Maui in the area of Lahaina. We had five different serve areas in one day : schools, elders, first responders, homeless and Salvation Army. We had around 100 volunteers of all ages and who truly embodied our vision of being citizens of heaven where there are no outsiders or foreigners. Where everyone is worthy of our love and compassion and each person matters.

This. Is. The. Church.

And the more we can see this, embody this and live it out, the more aligned with Christ’s vision for the church we will be.

I’m honored to be part of this small and mighty movement. And I’m proud to serve and carry the vision of all my amazing pastors!! @dustin_woodward @mandyjwoodward @nick_camacho @justintylerperez @kategperez
@galenwoodward @kkwoodward @brandonwoodward @delaneywoodward


Heading back to Maui for the second time in a month ...can’t wait to celebrate with our Ohana at @lcfmaui as we officially launch!! And excited to serve the island with our first official #serveday on Saturday! 🌈🌴🌊🙏🏻


My boy got married. 🤵👰 My favorite part of the whole day was this moment... when both sets of parents prayed over them.🙏🏻 Friends, don’t give up on parenting your people. Don’t ever stop leading them in Gods ways or directing their path toward faith. Even if it’s hard, or you don’t feel like it’s making a difference. ✝️ Because before you know it they’ll be in a place that they have to claim their own faith, and forge their own path. And by the grace of God you might be standing at the base of a tree with its towering branches and deep roots reminding you that you watered, and pruned, and tended for years so you might arrive at this day. ❤️ “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
‭‭John‬ ‭15:5‬ ‭NIV

If you’ve read my book “Hope in the Hard Places” you might know I talked about my little patch of green🍃 in the desert 🌵 that brings me joy and solace.
It’s been a season, friends.
Two kids graduated, many miles traveled, parties thrown, family visited, preparations made, the remnants cleared.

And now... I’m resting and refreshing and finally being still a moment. Until... What’s coming next is a whirlwind of two weddings 💒 in two weekends. {my nephew and my very own SON!} So today, I’m here. Praying. Preparing. Breathing.
And it’s good. 💫

A New Blog post from Sarah Beckman

A New Blog post from Sarah Beckman - After this many years, Kelley’s still teaching me. Her five year battle with leukemia was heroic to say the least. She fought valiantly, far exceeding her initial “months to live” diagnosis. All the while, she was brave, faith-filled, gracious, funny, strong, and a beacon of Hope. 05/03/2019

New Post from Sarah Beckman

New Post from Sarah Beckman - Yesterday was my best friend’s birthday. Only, she’s been in Heaven for almost a decade celebrating. Her name was Kelley, and if you’ve been around here for any length of time, you’ve heard about her. Or if you’ve read either of my books you probably feel like you know her already. She’s...

Choosing Faith Over Fear

I didn't get a chance to say this over the Easter weekend, but I think this article expresses my sentiments. HE IS RISEN, INDEED! May this week be a fresh start as you begin walking out the miracle of life you were given on Resurrection Day!


Get your signed copies of #hopeinhardplacesbook at @barnesandnoble !! The staff are so kind and helpful they specifically ordered books and asked me to come in and sign them! If you know someone who needs hope in this season of their life get on it! (Even if it’s you...) 🌼


Went to London with my hubby to attend a water conference. We presented together for an award the company was nominated for and we WON the people’s choice! 🥇

I gotta say even though I speak for a living I was so nervous for the presentation because it was very technical information. But it was good for me to get out of my normal box and push myself this way. We worked hard practiced A LOT, and it payed off! 🏆

When’s the last time you stepped out of your box and did something that scared you?😱


I’m an Irish girl... and this is me in the Irish countryside in a tiny town in front of the gas station of my namesake. So fun! 💚☘️🇮🇪
